expo start, DevTools binds to localhost, why?

This seems to be “expected” behavior, but it’s causing me alot of grief in trying to run this from a local ubuntu server. Based on my search I was unable to find any way to make it so DevTools binds to my lan ip like the rest of the services like the Metro Blunder do.

Because I can still build with web-only, which or use the emulator options, this doesn’t necessarily make it impossible to work on my application while building on it on a local server, vs my local machine, but It would be great if dev tools wasn’t available locally only.

Is it possible to change this some how?

Hey @mstonepc,

I’m going to raise this internally and see if we can provide a solution or at least more information as to why it’s not possible.
